Barri Gotic



Description:

The Barri Gotic can be seen in a day's walk, but it's best to give it the two days it deserves, especially if you're going into sites. Appreciate all it has to offer. Go deep into the city's history at the Museu d'Historia de la Ciutat. Discover the Roman Temple d'August. Consider its Jewish past. Enter its many churches: the Cathedral Seu, Maria del Mar, Pi, La Merce...and people watch in its squares: San Felip Neri, la Seu, Sant Jaume, Rei, Reial, Pi... Think you need someone to lead you through? Try a walking tour.

Day 1 - Barcelona


Start from the Placa de Catalunya, (where you left off the Gaudi and Modernism itinerary). Watch your wallet as you walk down the Ramblas, take a left at Carrer Portaferrissa, continue until you reach the Placa Nova and the Palau Episcopal. Turn the corner on Carrer de Bisbe then right on the first small alley-like street which leads you to the Placa Sant Felip Neri. The small and not as interesting as it sounds Museu del Calcat and little church where Gaudi used to come to mass are on this beautiful square. Exit the square from the other side and go up Carrer de Sant Sever back towards the Cathedral Seu. Circle the cathedral to its entrance, or continue around it. On the other site you'll find the Placa del Rei. There's often a busker near the Chillida sculpture, and it's a photo opportunity with the Reial Major Palace as a background. Go towards Carrer Jaume I and down Carrer Dagueria to the square and church Santos Just i Pastor. Follow Carrer Hercules to the Placa Sant Jaume then turn into Carrer Paradis to go into the Temple d'August, then back out to the Placa Sant Jaume and down Carrer Ferran for some shopping and eating.
